Source: Goldcorp As shown above, Cerro Negro’s AISC decreased 8%, while Eleonore registered a whopping 41% decline in its AISC sequentially in the last quarter. As a result of these cost reductions, Goldcorp has been able to improve its cash flow performance. In fact, the company posted free cash flow of $243 million in the last-reported quarter. This compares to a negative $357 million in free cash flow in the year-ago period, as evident in the chart given above, which is even more impressive if we consider that Goldcorp managed this despite weak gold pricing. Looking ahead, I believe that Goldcorp will be able to achieve further cost reductions as a part of its operating for excellence initiative, and this will help the company improve its fundamental performance even if gold prices are low.
